Queen Mermaid start

Watch out ... blogger actually uploaded this time. Color me in shock.
Anyway, I didn't work last night so I stitched. A. LOT. And I don't really feel like I accomplished much.

This is about 12 hrs, off 'n on throughout the night. The fabric I rec'd w/the kit is 16 ct. so this little bit of tail feather is HUGE. It's bigger than my hand, flat on the fabric. (if you click on the pic, it's about lifesize there ... ha-UUUge) So I'm guessin' at this rate it should take me about 13 yrs. to finish this baby.

So, I guess I gotta go work tonight. :o)

Wow, that IS huge! But she's going to be beautiful, that's for sure. :)

Lovely! Having stitched her I know exactly how big her tail flukes are, lol. And then when you get the bead trails on there it gets even bigger. That section took me a lot longer than 12hrs to stitch. Hats off to ya! And the fabric is just BEAUTIFUL!!!
